Try something different when you are making embellishments for your scrapbooking layouts, cards, mini albums or other craft projects. Why not try using embroidery stitching to fancy up embellishments. Stitches are really easy to do and will add some whimsy to you project. For my little mittens I used the 'lazy daisy' stitch.

If you don't know or remember stitches, there are my web sites that show instructions how to do these stitches, like Mary Corbet's Needle & Thread . Give it a try…you might like it!
